If I qualify for medical marijuana, is it legal for me to purchase it on the street?

Learn the Law Around Medical Marijuana

Purchasing marijuana on the street and not from a proper licensed source is illegal according to Canadian Criminal Law. In order to purchase marijuana legally, you need to be federally licensed to possess and use medical marijuana through Health Canada. Even then, all marijuana must be purchased through licensed growers. Unfortunately, even though you think you may have purchased your medical drug legally on the street because you are covered, according to the law you can be convicted of possession.
